stevens sent repeated cable to washington about security fears, even on september 1-11, the day he and three others were killed. why did the white house wait so long? what impact will the new documents have in the final debate? >> they're going to impact the final result. certainly it will be part of the final debate. look, now -- the president wants to play semantics on this, whether you put a word here or word there. fundamentally the mistake this administration made was trying to pretend and tell the world that terrorism was quelled in north africa and across the dangerous spots of the world. it's rampant and reared its ugly head and the administration is trying to hide that. when poor embassador stevens sent cables saying it's real, it's here, they shoved him under the table. shame on the president and shame on the state department. >> can we expect mitt romney to be aggressive about the benghazi it attack and ask about the video? >> i don't know what he's going to ask him but i will say he was kind of shocked when the president lied about having referred to the attack at a rea

chris stevens. in nearly six weeks the president has refused to tell what happened, why, with the administrations is doing and the fact of the benghazi attacks on foreign policy. the administraton has tried to change their sory to rewrite the narrative eve as it unfolded. the miniry should focus was on the nti-muslim video as the cause of the tragedy. the secretary of state made no reference of ankind as a terrorist attacks. >> americans couldn't to religious tolerance goes back to the beginning of our nation. let me be clear. there is no justification. lou: only 40 minutes later esident made an appearance in the rose garden. he talked for five minutes much of that time talking about his september 11th merial duties and wounded four years in arlington cemetery and around the world then sd. >> no acts of terror will ever resolve this great nation, alter the character or eclipse the values we stand for. will not waver and our commitment to see justice is done. lou: preceded by reference on september 11th with a terrorist attack on erican soil for that that point* field on
service held for her son in california, chris stevens' mother told interviewer she has heard nothing from the white house. >> do you feel like your questions have been answered? >> you have to know something about something to have questions about it. i don't know enough really to ask questions. >> how much does it matter to you, to know? >> well, it doesn't bring him back, does it? >> much attention has been paid to the tv appearances made by the u.n. ambassador susan rice on sunday, september 16. in which, she pressed the idea now discredited that the benghazi murders were not premeditated but grew out of a protest that spun out of control. ambassador rice also spoke about the precautions taken before 9/11. >> the security personnel, the state department thought were required were in place. >> clearly that judgment turned out to be wrong. fox news learned that the coming hours will bring significant new details about the state department pre9/11 security decisions in benghazi from house lawmakers, bret, who have been reviewing classified documents in this case. >> bret: we'll follow all

by additional security? we're hearing there were concerns by some of those who were a part of ambassador stevens' immediate group talking about issues that they had. there's also been just moments ago, some discussion about whether some of the information being presented is classified or not. so there are lots of political overtones to this. very complicated because there are lives that were lost here. there was service to the country from these fine americans who were there and who were killed and so everyone is trying to trade a bit lightly on that. but there is a lot of politics mixed into this along with the committee's responsibility in oversight to look for answers. there was frustration among some republicans that the state department put out a detailed timeline but not included members of the committee. frustration among democrats who say that one of the members jason chav fitz went to libya but no democrats involved on that trip. there are complex ish shis and don't expect to have all of the issues. they want to shine a light on things, worries among those closest to ambassador stevens
wanted to stay past august and ambassador stevens wanted his team to stay, as well. in the memo, obtained exclusively by abc news, the embassy in libya did not mince words, requesting that the state department keep the 16-member security support team in the country. quite simply, we cannot maintain our existing levels of embassy operations without a continued security support team presence, the memo says. that request, made in february, was granted. after that, security in libya deteriorated further with western target attacks. now the commander of the security team tells me his team wanted to stay past august and that ambassador stevens wanted them there as well. but for some reason, the state department, he says, did not let it happen. wood will testify in front of the oversight committee wednesday. >> we need to operate in a country like libya with -- erring on the side of security. >> reporter: a senior state department official tells abc news that no official request for an extension after august was ever made and there were just as many u.s. shooters present as before. the official

congressional investigators that the security at the compound in benghazi where ambassador stevens and three other americans were killed was, quote, inappropriately low. and you'll be surprised to hear who stood in his way, in his view, when he tried to rectify that. abc news has learned that although eric nordstrom and the commander of an american security team also in libya had heard that foreign fighters were flowing across the egyptian border, state department officials seemed oblivious to the benghazi consulate's vulnerability. nordstrom told investigators he was worried. a local security brigade mostly consisted of merchants and shopkeepers had received no pay in months, other than a daily $30 stipend for food from the embas embassy. i had no idea if they would respond to an attack, nordstrom told investigators. senior state department officials now acknowledge that only an hour before gunman methodically and deliberately stormed the compound, killing ambassador chris stevens, the streets were empty and things were calm. a direct contradiction to statements earlier made by administrati
the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. for example, they say that ambassador stevens used to jog almost daily, frequently with his security detail. but that the -- according to their sources they say, a pro-gadhafi facebook website posted a stacked photo of stevens and also a threat against him. so he stopped temporarily stopped for about a week. and then he went back again. here's what congressman daryl issa tells cnn. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless and took the advice always of his security forces including sometimes when they said meetings needed to be canceled. so i think this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security and a failure of judgment. but not of the now-deceased ambassador. >> and, wolf, there are other incidents in fact we've been reporting on them all along that they note. one was an assailant blowing a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission tworks rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and finally the most serious probably was other
, not only at our post but at our annex. and we couldn't find ambassador stevens. and we were trying desperately to figure out what had happened to him and to shaun smith and the others who were there. so it was an intense, you know, long ordeal for everybody at the state department and in libya. >> now, i know the investigation is going to play itself out. >> right. >> but in the short-term, the state department officials and diplomatic security admit that requests for security were denied because they said that it was adequate based on the threat level. did you get that intelligence about the threat level? or was this a bad security decision? >> you know, elise, one of the things we're going to explore in the accountability review that i have ordered is exactly what happened. and what can we do to make sure that we learn lessons from it. nobody wants to get to the bottom of this more than i do. i knew chris stevens. i've had a chance to meet the families of the other three men who we lost. i take this very personally. so we're going to get to the bottom of it. and then we're going
from chris stevens was his concern about security at the consulate. i don't expect the president to know when 16 people are moved in or out or something like that. but i certainly expect him to know in his daily intelligence brief that things were deteriorating in benghazi to a terrible degree. and then, of course, when it happened, we saw all this business of spontaneous demonstrations, which anyone with any knowledge knew -- by the way, the cia station chief in benghazi's first message back was that this was a terrorist attack and we all knew and they knew that there was an al qaeda-affiliated organization there. this is really an unacceptable screw-up and obviously the president should have known better. >> let's talk about the debate tonight because you're unique in this regard. you've debated both mitt romney when he was seeking the republican nomination, you won. you debated the president when you were the republican nominee. he won that. i'm going to play a couple of clips of you debating both of these individuals four years ago. >> my hero is a guy named tedly roosevelt.
consulate in benghazi, libya on september 11th. u.s. ambassador christopher stevens, three other americans were killed. you know that. at the time of the attack, a backlash was building over an anti-muslim video in other parts of the world. various officials in the obama administration initially said a protest outside the consulate had turned violent. tonight, though, on the eve of a congressional hearing about the security situation in benghazi, prior to the attack, a new narrative is emerging from the state department. jill dougherty joins me now. so jill, there is a question about whether there were protests outside the consulate. the state department is now saying tonight there was nothing out of the ordinary, that all was quiet before the attack took place. there was no protest. that contradicts what we've heard from other corners of the administration, even days after the attack. how can that be? >> well, anderson, you know, they did not specifically say there were no protests. i just checked what one of those officials said, and he said you would have to ask others about that, but t
